Plot Summary: “The Great New Wonderful” is populated by people you know: New Yorkers you see on the elevator, in the supermarket, at the gym. Without a trace of sentimentality, director Danny Leiner, a Brooklyn native, and his extraordinary cast paints five portraits of life in this city a year after the attacks of 9/11.
Dr. Trabulous (Tony Shalhoub) is an orthodox psychologist who utilizes his unique insights to unearth the buried rage of an ordinary man (Jim Gaffigan) who has witnessed an office tragedy.
Emme Keeler (Maggie Gyllenhaal), the ruthless proprietor of The Great New Wonderful – a leading purveyor of pastries to the New York society set – struggles to unseat NY’s reigning Queen of Cake (Edie Falco), to great success and profound consequences.
Allison & David Burbage (Judy Greer, Tom McCarthy) struggle to keep their marriage together while coping with their increasingly difficult and strangely self-possessed 10-year-old son.
Avi and Satish (Naseerudin Shah, Sharat Saxena), immigrants, best friends and security guards, travel around the city casually observing contemporary America until dramatic events force them to reevaluate their opposing perspectives.
Judy Berman’s (Olympia Dukakis) routine is upset when she reconnects with a childhood friend whose passion for life kindles unexpected desires of her own.
One year after 9/11, these stories reveal that being lost always precedes a new beginning.
